PTFE Tape Product Description
PTFE Tape, also know as thread tape or plumbers tape is a polytetrafluoroethylene film that is primarily used on the threads of pipes to ensure that they seal properly.
What is PTFE Tape Good For
Some popular uses include:
- The thread of pipes
- Stretching of earlobes
Not Recommended For
- Anything that requires an adhesive (it’s not sticky)
- It’s easiest to cut with a pair of scissors or a sharp knife, rather than with your hands
- Make sure you apply the tape the correct way, so it doesn’t unwind when you screw in the thread. (check out the quick 2 minute video below)
